Without a jointer and planer, you are going to spend a ton of time getting the boards flat and straight so if you charge them for your time to get it perfect enough for a counter top, you are going to easily justify the cost of buying a ready made top. For example, at just $20 per hour, you could buy this 48x30 $150 maple top for just 7.5 hours of labor without even considering the cost of the lumber.
